Our work and programmes
Peace Child India cooperativesPeace Child India promotes handmade paper and Khadi* products, as a means of providing a sustainable income to economically and socially mariginalised communities.
Peace Child India has set up two co-operatives.
One is for the women from the village of Doddabele off Mysore road. The women make cloth bags and beautiful candles.
The other co-operative is for the women of the migrant community in Rajarajeshwarinagar. The women here make greeting cards of handmade paper and cloth folders.
Arthaa is a range of these products made by women and young people from the slum and migrant community. These young women have received little of no formal education, and are expected to work from a young age in order to provide for their families.
Our project aims to train them in employable skills, and to provide them with a sustainable and fair wage for their labour. We aim to empower these women to become more self sufficient.
*Khadi is hand spun cotton of historical and national interest to India
